Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help with this matter.
Can you tell me what your question is specifically please. Thank you.
Thanks you. Ok so the CMS will have done the calculation based on the information provided to them by the mother. However, he can appeal this decision. He will have to submit evidence to show that the children are with him for 52+ nights a year (which is the next category for payments). If he can do this then the CMS will recalculate his payments. I will note two things, firstly, if he does not make any payments in the meantime then he will build up arrears. I would advise using the online CMS calculator to calculate what he should be paying (based on the truthful information). If he pays this in the meantime then he shouldn't have any arrears when the recalculation was done. The other thing is that the CMS do not take any outgoings into consideration such as rent, bills etc. it is solely based on his Net Income.
I hope this information has helped.
